Hiring a Ventriloquist – Tips, Advice and How to Book

A ventriloquist may seem like an unusual form of entertainment to book, but they have seen a recent comeback and are gaining popularity once more, with both children and adults. Read our handy guide full of tips and advice before you book a ventriloquist.

What events are ventriloquists suitable for?

Ventriloquists can cater for a variety of different events, and there are many types of ventriloquist that can cater for children or adults. Hire a ventriloquist for:

  • Birthday Party Entertainment (Children and Adults)
  • Corporate Event Entertainment
  • Family Fun Days
  • Comedy Shows

What does a ventriloquist actually do?

A ventriloquist usually performs with puppets and can talk without moving their lips. This makes it look like they are having a conversation with their puppets and can be very entertaining indeed. Ventriloquism is a skill that can be self-taught and many ventriloquists spend many hours practicing, while adding an element of comedy into their routines. This can be in the form of mischievous puppets, or getting their puppets to tell jokes.

How long will a ventriloquist perform for?

Each ventriloquist will have their own performance lengths, so they will vary between performers. Most ventriloquists will be able to perform for an hour or two, depending on the number of puppets within their routine.



How much does a ventriloquist cost?

The costs to hire a ventriloquist will vary depending on the experience and location of your performer. Expect experienced ventriloquists to charge more than someone just starting out.

What should I ask a ventriloquist?

Before booking a ventriloquist, it is always advisable to ask those all important questions, such as:

  • Do you have public liability insurance?
  • If you are hiring a ventriloquist for children, always check that they have been police checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service
  • How long will your performance last?
  • What sort of comedy is included?
  • How much do you charge?
  • Are you free to perform on the date of my event?
  • Are there any special requirements needed for your performance?
